Dear PoP – Why No Right Turn?

“Dear PoP,

When traveling west over the Duke Ellington Bridge (towards Connecticut Ave) there is a sign right that says No Right Turns between 7:00 – 9:30 and 4:30 – 6:00 in reference to turning onto Woodley Pl. It seems odd, as Woodley Pl is a one way street (heading north) and there are no restrictions for making left turns onto Woodley. Any ideas?”

Hmm, that doesn’t make any sense at all. From looking at the photo my best guess is that the no right turn sign is actually in reference to Connecticut Ave. That section of Calvert that turns onto Connecticut has a designated right hand turn lane and signal that could back up traffic during rush hour. I think the folks in the comments have it right. Makes sense.

Can anyone confirm my suspicion?
